I have the Verizon USB internet card for my laptop. My son's dad bought him a laptop and router for CHRISTmas. Is there any way possible for him to connect to my Verizon USB internet through this router???
Does your laptop have an inbuilt wireless network card? Does your Son's laptop have inbuilt wireless? It may be possible to create an Ad-hoc network connection between the two laptops and implement Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) in your machine to share the Verizon service. In this case you won't need the wireless router. If your machine does not have a wireless NIC then you may be able to connect by ethernet cable from your laptop to a LAN port of the router.Log into the router and disable DHCP. Turn on and configure your wireless signal. You will need to manually configure your laptop's ethernet connection to have IP 192.168.0.1with Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 which is the default IP used by ICS. You will also have to manually configure the IP address in your Son's machine to one in the same subnet such as 192.168.0.2.with same subnet mask. The internet in your son's machine then uses 192.168.0.1 as Gateway & DNS server.
